A shame but only after a fashion.  I tried Iron Python + Visual

be created visually and then implemented by Python code.

Well, yes, ok.  But the class implementing the GUI was effectively 
STATIC.  I could not define class variables or methods.  IIRC, the 
static limitation ruled out spawning worker threads that were 
dynamic.  I stopped looking at Iron Python about a year ago.  I also 
gave up on Visual Studio at the same time.

C Python works just fine and without dynamic Visual Studio 
integration, I didn't see any advantage to Iron Python.  I understand 
that running under the .NET CLR is a difference over native Windows 
API via ctypes.  For me, that difference is not an advantage but 
merely a difference.
